Due to the architecture of the Venue, some seats have a better view of the stage than others. A restricted view seat means that at some points during the performance you may not see the action on stage, or that perhaps a section of the set is out of view. These seats are priced accordingly. Please note, where a seat may be deemed "restricted view" for one production, it might be a perfect seat for another due to the nature of the performance, the set etc.
